not too many pittsburghers around here

I don't even know where it is

it's often easier to do intro posts in f/lobby and say some things about yourself to give people something to work with

different parts of the commune should regularly have to prevent other parts from emerging as ruler,

through a range of possible strategies that reduce legitimacy or material advantage, (e,g, potlatch, murder, war, mockery, witchcraft)

which become normalised as culture within the society

and ultimately become the basis of a whole cosmology, with sets of myths which promote permanent undermining of emergent dominating powers

I could use more info about what deplatforming is.

Is it banning someone from raddle?
Is it knocking a priest from a pulpit?
Preventing a fascist from presenting at an event in person?
Preventing a fascist from presenting at an event online?
Is it deserting a political project?
